It’s still very early in the season and to put the Clippers’ poor start in perspective, let’s remember that the Cavs started last season with a 5-7 record before making it to the finals. Still, there is reason for concern. A roster like the Clippers’, with so much talent, should not have as much difficulty securing wins. After Sunday’s loss, the Clippers are 6-7.
There is plenty of blame to go around. After all, Blake Griffin, J.J. Redick, Chris Paul, DeAndre Jordan and Jamal Crawford are all capable of doing more. The addition of Paul Pierce was supposed to bring a stronger mentality to the team, but we’ve seen the Clippers take opponents lightly and consistently get beat on the boards.
Few saw this sort of start for the Clippers, so here’s the topic for today: How will the Clippers finish the season? What is mostly to blame for the poor start?
